  1. Need Help!! Positive pre-employment drug screen

    Get a LAWYER immediately -especially RN, JD. This is just a bump. It is not the end. Hang in there.
  2. Best to resign or wait it out?

    Get references from few trusted colleagues and resign. DO not risk your license and Nursing reputation.
  3. Is this thing still on?

    Nope, that's not what administrators do. Anyway, you will find out soon. It is not easy being a Nurse leader. They do not get a lot of appreciation for what they do by their bosses and by Nurses. Keep us updated as you transition into this new role....
  4. Multiple types of beds and mattresses

    The hospital should have a contract with the bed/mattress vendors for free in-services for the hospital staff -clincal and non-clinical. The onus is on the hospital to ensure 100% compliance with the training.
  5. Restraints

    Any time that there is not a valid order for the restrain, it is illegal to continue the restraint and could be a liability issue. If any harm happens to the patient during that period without an order, the hospital and the responsible RN would be l...
  6. Med Error

    If you meet Nurses who claim that they have never made a medication error, they are LYING. Making medication error is horrible but it is a great learning experience.
  7. Med error

    Legally, if you did not write it, you did not do it. It is your word against your accuser. Originally, there are five rights of medication administration, some institutions have up to ten rights including the right to document. You made a documentati...

    Before you go in, get your malpractice insurance here.
  9. To the nurse who was belittling and condescending to me today

    Good for you to vent. It helps! Some people lack self-esteem so they try to steal it from other people. Sometimes, these self-esteem vampires do not even know that they are doing it. Next time, feel bad for her. She must be lacking self-worth and sel...
  10. You are a leader now...

    Thank you for your posting. It is not easy being a leader especially when people's life are at stake. I agree that self-reflection is a MUST for every leader. Best leaders know their weakness and their strengths.
  11. What is the grossest thing that's happened to you???

    Amniotic fluid went all over my uniform. Luckily, it did not go into my face. I took three hours shower in the hospital....Yuck!!

    Honey, I know that you are a pediatric nurse, but this is ridiculous!
  13. Tattoos in Nursing

    What do you think about Nurses with tattoos? Do you have tattoos? Should tattoos be shown during work as a Nurse? There is no right or wrong answers. Thank you.
  14. Passed third time nclex

    Congratulations! Good job!!!
  15. Patient satisfaction or patient dissatisfaction

    My hospital has a service recovery program. If a patient complains, somebody from leadership will come to personally apologize and bring a gift such as gift cards, baby layette, etc. Personally, I hate the program. I feel that it is bribery!
